As usual, this summer season looks to be stuffed with massively hyped, massively budgeted blockbusters, from May’s The Avengers to August’s The Expendables 2. Whenever you tire of glossy, expensive explosions in IMAX 3D, however — and at some point you will — there are plenty of other smaller movies on the calendar that could be worth a look.

Rapper T.I. has done a few movies (Takers, American Gangster, ATL) but has had his cinematic aspirations derailed by little things like county jail and federal prison stints. But he’s back at work, and in an interview conducted at SXSW, T.I. said that he’s got a couple of film projects on the horizon.

Specifically, the rapper said “there is a Marvel Comic franchise that [has] been inquiring about my availability for some time,” and “we also have a new Tom Cruise film with Doug Liman… I have that as well, on the horizon.” That would be We Mortals Are, once titled All You Need is Kill, the film in which Cruise plays a soldier in a future war who is killed, but has to relive his last hours, Groundhog Day-style, over and over again. I liked one draft of the script quite a bit; the film could be a wild, action-packed and slightly weird experience.

Check the video interview after the break, and get news of Christopher Meloni’s new indie, and the dark comedy that has recruited actors like Gillian Jacobs and Ned Beatty. Read More »
